This is a good video to watch before you put in your DVDs to watch Band of Brothers.

Subject: Great inspiring film!
It's so interesting watching this film and seeing what it accomplishes, vs the atypical propoganda film, and all it's lies. By touching on America's patriotism and hope that the war would end soon, the film makers made a nice breezy little film.

Subject: Great war short
Excellent war footage and intriguing first person narrative of events gives a compelling look into the operations of US paratroopers as part of the D-Day invasion. Recommended.

Subject: D-Day Minus One
The story of the paratroop and glider corps, who landed in France the day before D-Day and cleared the way for the invasion, is told with first person narration. It's actually a fairly compelling story, which impresses you with the bravery of the men involved. The footage is excellent, giving you a real feel for what it must have been like to be over there.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: N/A. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest:*****. Overall Rating: ***. Also available on World War II, Vol. 8: D-Day, the Normandy Invasion.
